Hi Arrazi, thanks for the question.
Lumps on the skin are one part of a skin rash. Skin rashes vary widely in causes so it is necessary to explore the characteristics to determine the cause. Some of these characteristics include:
Size and location of the lump
Disappear with emphasis or not
Accompanied by other symptoms, such as itching, pain, pus, or not
Based on these characteristics, it is possible to think about what condition the lump is most likely caused by. Some of the possible causes of lumps on your hands and feet include:
Skin infections, such as scabies or scabies
Dermatitis or inflammation of the skin
Hives or urticaria
Insect bites or dermatitis venenata
Allergy to certain drugs or substances
Skin irritation due to the use of certain products, etc
It is impossible to determine the cause of the disease without direct examination. Therefore, it is recommended that Arrazi continue to see a doctor and avoid taking drugs without clear indications and advice from a doctor. This is to avoid the use of inappropriate drugs, dosage errors, and side effects that may arise. Let the doctor who provides therapy after determining the diagnosis of your disease directly. Some tips that you should keep doing:
Avoid squeezing and scratching the bumps because there is a risk of irritation and secondary infection
Keep your skin clean by bathing twice a day using a mild soap
Avoid using products that are not clear and have not been registered with BPOM
Avoid foods or drugs that are suspected of causing allergies
I hope this helps.
